Panther Scholarship Portal Opens Oct. 1

The Panther Scholarship Portal begins accepting scholarship applications for the 2023-24 academic year on October 1, 2022.

All schools and colleges and many academic departments and programs offer scholarships for students based on a variety of factors, including academic merit, leadership, and service. Some require demonstrated financial need, which means the student must submit a FAFSA to be considered.

One in three students receives a scholarship annually, and scholarship recipients receive approximately $3,000 on average.

The Panther Scholarship Portal is students’ one-stop website to find and apply to scholarships offered at UWM. Students complete one General Application, and most of the application carries over to the next awarding cycle. Schools and colleges may also have a supplemental application which they use along with the General Application to award their scholarships. After students complete their initial applications, they receive a list of scholarships that they may be eligible for.

Most schools and colleges select scholarship recipients by March 1 for the following academic year. Encourage your student to apply early!
